- This was definitely not my favorite Kate Morton book but it was still a good one. I did feel like parts of this book were a little drawn out at times.
- I liked how the story went back and forth between different time periods. It really helped develop the stories for all the characters.
- I was able to guess bits of the ending but not the whole thing.
- Overall, it was a good book and I’m looking forward to reading more by Kate Morton in the future!
